Pirate bomb is our beer Prairie Bomb! aged in rum casks. The flavor from the casks helps impart more vanilla and coconut flavors to the beer while helping to add more body and smoothness to the already explosive and expressive flavors of Bomb!

Growler. Opaque black with a frothy tan head, rapidly diminishing. Big malt-forward aroma of roasted grain, char, coffee, chocolate, chili, smoke, alcohol, vanilla. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, moderate carbonation. Hot alcohol and hot chili pepper make this hot, though not hot enough to be drain pour. Besides the heat, there is taste of coffee, vanilla and chocolate.

Obtenue depuis la réserve d’une cave parisienne, gentiment cédée pour le nouveau venu qui vient de loin ... C’est épais. C’est assez abracadabrant au niveau du chocolat qui fond littéralement sur le palais ! J’aurais sans doute aimé plus d’expressivité du piment; mais, en effet, c’est une bière qui scotche bien ... ! ... Une bière dessert, une bière récompense en quelque sorte. J’aurais sans doute plus apprécié le truc en plein hiver que sous cette petite canicule estivale ...

Taste also of vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, red peppers and a little burn from them, well hidden alcohol for a 14% beer, brown sugar, subtle rum. Thick body with soft carbonation, creamy and smooth on the palate. Great beer, very complex and yet balanced.

Poured a deep dark brown with almost no head. Aromas of wood, tons of coffee, vanilla, and caramel. Flavor had coffee, hints of booze, wood, caramel, vanilla, and chocolate. A little pepper heat and bite to it after each swallow. Full body, oily texture, decent carbonation, and a very nice finish with mild alcohol burn mixing with the pepper bite. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Guinn’s house thanks to Casey. Pours dark brown to black and is very similar to the normal Bomb! Rum barrel is evident and works well with this one. Really nice beer. This is my favorite of the varieties of this.

Bottle shared with Souberd, thanks! Black poor, brown lasting foam head. Vanilla aroma, not overwhelming but there. On initial tasting strong wood taste, turning light bitter, coco tones. (Velp 201506)

Flaska. Kolsvart med ett lättare beige skum. Doft lagrad rom, kaffe, trä, vanilj och karamell. I smaken tillkommer chilihettan. Den är dock Bränner till i eftersmaken parat med sälta. Stor kropp. Oljig munkänsla. ganska balanserad och grundölen är stark nog att bära den.
